The best of both worlds: a proposal for further integration of Candidatus names into the International Code of Nomenclature of Prokaryotes

Names
Abstract
The naming of prokaryotes is governed by the International Code of Nomenclature of Prokaryotes (ICNP) and partially by the International Code of Nomenclature for Algae, Fungi and Plants (ICN). Such codes must be able to determine names of taxa in a universal and unambiguous manner, thus serving as a common language across different fields and activities. This unity is undermined when a new code of nomenclature emerges that overlaps in scope with an established, time-tested code and uses the same

Filling the gaps: missing taxon names at the ranks of class, order and family

Citation

Names
Nitrospiria “Nitrobium” Nitrospirales Paracoccaceae
Abstract
The International Code of Nomenclature of Prokaryotes (ICNP) recently underwent some major modifications regarding the higher taxonomic ranks. On the one hand, the phylum category was introduced into the ICNP, which rapidly led to the valid publication of more than forty names of phyla. On the other hand, a decision on the retroactivity of Rule 8 regarding the names of classes was made, which removed most of the nomenclatural uncertainty that had affected those names during the last decade.

List of Prokaryotic names with Standing in Nomenclature (LPSN) moves to the DSMZ

Citation
Parte et al. (2020). International Journal of Systematic and Evolutionary Microbiology 70 (11)
Names
“Adiutricales” “Desulfofervidales”
Abstract
The List of Prokaryotic names with Standing in Nomenclature (LPSN) was acquired in November 2019 by the DSMZ and was relaunched using an entirely new production system in February 2020. This article describes in detail the structure of the new site, navigation, page layout, search facilities and new features.
